This 1-day symposium is for service providers, legal and medical professionals,
advocates, students, and community members who are interested in learning about healthcare for women with precarious status and self-care options for front-line workers.

Join us to:

  • Learn about the latest changes to the refugee and immigration system and its impact on access to healthcare, including its gendered effects
  • Network and share strategies for client advocacy, organizational change, and systemic change across the VAW, healthcare, legal, refugee and settlement sectors
  • Discuss the cumulative impact of changes on our work as service providers and advocates e.g. vicarious trauma, burn-out, and risks of PTSD
  • NEW this year: Participate in our first annual “Care Fair” where practitioners will share simple, practical techniques for improving self-care and community care in an expo-style format.
